New for 2012, and replacing the previous Short Course (Olympic) Triathlon is the Castles Challenge Middle Distance Triathlon (Half-Iron Distance).
Race registration and the race start is at Bamburgh Castle, Northumberland and will begin at 10am (TBC) with a 1900m sea swim (2 laps), followed by a 90km (56 mile) bike that follows the coastal route south before returning north past Warkworth Castle and onto Alnwick Castle (T2), where there is 4 lap 21km (13 mile) run around Alnwick Castle, through the very picturesque Hulne Park along the banks of the River Aln.
This race forms part of the Castles Challenge Triathlon Series that include junior triathlon and sprint triathlon races held at Bamburgh Castle on Saturday 28th July.
This will be one of the most scenic, most beautiful triathlon courses you will ever race in! The setup costs for this race are very, very high compared to other races (hiring two castles isn’t cheap!) and we always endeavor to make this race as affordable as possible. For your race entry fee we will be providing you with the following:
• T2 Run Bag, wetsuit bag & dry kit bag will all be transferred to T2 at Alnwick Castle
• Free coach transfer back to Bamburgh for those who need to collect their vehicles
• Race chip timing
• Race T Shirt
• Free entry on race day with your race number into Alnwick Gardens (worth £15)
• Great support from our volunteer race marshals
• And a stunning race around two of the country’s most impressive historic landmarks!
New webpages are being constructed with lots of race info, links will be posted here as soon as they become live. In the meantime, should you have any enquires, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
